Local health officials are investigating a possible norovirus outbreak in Jefferson County.  About 40 people became ill after eating at a restaurant where a worker, who was sick, handled food. Officials won’t say which restaurant was involved, WISC-TV reported.

“If we say too much more to identify it and you end up ruining their reputation and people are afraid to go there, that’s not our purpose,” said Gail Scott, of the Jefferson County Health Department. “Our purpose is to see that they are using good food handling practices and to get the message out to stop the secondary spread.”
